A Ruffle Tote for Quilt Market

Hi friends! How was your weekend? I hope you made some time to be creative! My workshops at Stampers Corner in Elk Grove were so FUN! Thanks ladies, you all did such an awesome job. Love all your creativity!

Here is the "Ruffle Tote" featuring Eclectic Elements fabric. This project happens to have more hours then any of the other projects I made, not that it was more difficult, the project just started in a totally different direction. It was well worth all the hours because I love the way it turned out.
The tote has 2 big ruffle going up and down each side. 

Torn edges on the ruffles give it a raw deconstructed look.

Here's the main part of the bag, just randomly pieced. 

Love the "Subway" print for the top band of the tote. 

Repeating the pieced look for the handle helped tie it all together. 

This is where the tote started. It was definitely worth all the work.

Thanks for stopping in!
